You must have a max CP of 1.5k, which limits the types of Pokemon that can participate.

Here are the best teams for the Pokémon Go Holiday Cup in the Go Battle League.

Pokémon Go: The best leads for the Holiday Cup

Lead Pokémon need to be pushy from the start and have a long shelf life.

There are a number of great options for this, depending on what types you use for the rest of your team.

Here are our recommendations:

  • Shadow Magnezone (Spark, wild rush, mirror shot)
  • lux (spark, wild rush, psychic fangs)
  • auror (Powder Snow, Weatherball (Ice), Meteor Beam)
  • Alolan stonemason (Volt Switch, Stone Edge, Rock Blast)

  • Abomasnow (Powder Snow, Weather Ball (Ice), Energy Ball)
  • Shadow Alolan Marowak (Fire Spin, Shadow Bone, Bone Mace)

Pokémon Go: The best switches for the Holiday Cup

You need a strong Pokemon to switch into when your main Pokemon isn’t keeping up as well as you might hope.

This should be different from your lead and serve as a counterpart to other popular leads.

Here are our recommendations:

  • Shadow Charizard (Wing Attack, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw)
  • zangoose (Shadow Claw, Melee, Night Slash)
  • double wool (double kick, body slam, payback)
  • Charizard (Wing Attack, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw)
  • Shadow Luxray (spark, wild rush, psychic fangs)
  • auror (Powder Snow, Weatherball (Ice), Meteor Beam)
  • obstacle (Counter, Night Slash, Cross Chop)
  • Zebstrika (Spark, wild charge, flame charge)
  • shadow electrovir (Thunder Clap, Wild Charge, Ice Strike)
  • shadow whalerein (Powder Snow, Icicle Spear, Earthquake)

Pokémon Go: Best Closers for the Holiday Cup

Closers work best when there are no more shields in play on either side of the field.

They often have incredibly charged attacks and enough mass to withstand enemy powerful attacks.

We recommend:

  • Togedemaru (Thunder Clap, Wild Charge, Spinning Ball)
  • Regice (Lockdown, Blizzard, Earthquake)
  • shadow electrovir (Thunder Clap, Wild Charge, Ice Strike)
  • auror (Powder Snow, Weatherball (Ice), Meteor Beam)
  • shadow magnetite (Thunder Clap, Magnetic Bomb, Discharge) *with XL Candy
  • Shadow Magneton (Thunder Clap, Magnetic Bomb, Discharge)
  • magnet zone (Spark, wild rush, mirror shot)
  • freeze let (powder snow, avalanche, shadow ball)
  • Lanturn (Water Gun, Surf, Thunder Clap)
  • Shadow Raikou (Volt Switch, Wild Charge, Shadow Ball)

Pokémon Go: Best attackers for the Holiday Cup

If you find that your shields often deplete before your opponents do, you may want to switch to an attacker.

These Pokemon have good bulk and powerful fast attacks to take down opponents.

We recommend the following:

  • auror (Powder Snow, Weatherball (Ice), Meteor Beam)
  • Lanturn (Water Gun, Surf, Thunder Clap)
  • Altaria (Dragon’s Breath, Sky Attack, Moon Strike)
  • Pachirisu (Volt Switch, Thunder Punch, Thunderbolt) *with XL Candy
  • Wigglytuff (charm, ice beam, play rough)
  • obstacle (Counter, Night Slash, Cross Chop)
  • Alolan Ninetales (Talisman, Weather Ball (Ice), Psychoshock)
  • Vigoroth (counterattack, body slam, bulldoze)
  • mantine (Wing Attack, Bubble Jet, Ice Jet)
  • Mold (Snowy) (Powder Snow, Weatherball (Ice), Ice Beam)
